  1. There seems to be a lot of accusations related to scamming on this topic, so I’m locking this thread pending an investigation into allegations of scamming. If our staff team determines that some form of foul play did occur, this topic will be removed promptly. I’m encouraging all parties @Rev [email protected] Cavesto message me here on the forums and we can either exchange discord information or exchange any relevant screenshots that make your case or defense.
  2. What are you talking about "ex-mod?" Clearly I'm still here, I just need a break occasionally from getting death threats from a bunch of edgy teenagers on a near daily basis for doing a task that is completely voluntary. There's no winning. If I don't do something about certain events, I get attacked and mass pm'd some pretty disgusting shit. If I do intervene and uphold our rules, the same thing happens. Spare me your bullshit. The decisions I make are generally pretty clear and fairly well fleshed out. I just have minimal patience for idiots like Nox who cry bias when they're usually the source of rampant community bullshit. Him and about 7 Apex members got banned for basically making direct threats to staff members, mass highlighting our Discord and attempting to attack another player very directly back in 2018, and *MOST* of them have successfully appealed and have been unbanned. I'm sorry that Nox feels like he's due special treatment because he's a clan leader, but the truth is he isn't. He's very well aware of our policies and procedures and yet chooses to undermine them pretty actively. Apex members are fine and free to participate on this website as much as they please. Nox is not and has not for the last two years because of actions and decisions he chose to make to attack Giggs publicly and make the jobs of this staff team more difficult than it needs to be. His reaction to his ban was so extreme that he screamed and cried like a damn infant and threatened to have Apex boycott our community (But guess who is still participating here? You are!) He refuses to appeal, so he's staying where he's at, and quite frankly I'm tired of his bullshit. Even if my recent interaction with him was extreme, there's no excusing his attempts to undermine SharkBrew and attack us for things that were ultimately his fault, and also hypocritical considering he's said and done much worse. Anyone who chooses to follow his example will join him. On the flipside, if he actually wants to make a defensible appeal instead of asking others to backdoor him into the community, he'll have his chance at an unban, but only if his behavior towards SharkBrew changes. On a separate note, if you want to discuss the terms for why you were banned and want to appeal your offense, you can either message me on Discord or make an appeal topic. If you message me directly I'll be able to help you much quicker. You mentioned that you appealed previously, but unfortunately you thought it was appropriate to not take the process seriously and demand an unban which saw your appeal denied. If you choose to do nothing again, best of luck to you.
  3. We do. The problem is that this behavior has become endemic to the community as a whole. When someone steps out of line and behaves in a manner such as this, others feel it appropriate to take matters into their own hands and lash out in retaliation, which creates a pretty substantial domino effect. I have 10 pages of logs of users we’ve banned from Sharkbrew for this behavior. 10 PAGES. That’s 15 users per page. I’ve been ratcheting down pressure to get people to stop, and it still doesn’t deter anyone which means the issue is greater than “just permanently ban these people.” We do, and it still persists. Everyone involved on SharkBrew or in the community as a whole needs to ask themselves what they want this scene to look like, and you cannot act hypocritical whilst doing so. If you’re going to complain about this pervasive and toxic behavior, you better make sure you’re holding your own people to the same standard. That’s how we fix this, by everyone pitching in and holding each other accountable, and not let these people continue to participate in our clans. I can only do so much to ban these people, the rest is up to you guys to set the bar higher and not recruit anyone with a history of aggressive and threatening behavior. If no one will let them participate, they go away and our community will benefit from it.
  4. You fail to understand that this is 2020, and a photo is enough to reveal a whole lake of information about people. You can plug a photo of someone into a search engine and have the opportunity to find social media accounts, which can more times than not lead to finding out where someone lives, where they work, how to contact them, etc. While it might be your personal responsibility to take precautions to protect yourself, it doesn’t change the fact that there are psychopaths that become obsessed with attacking people to the point of ruining their relationships, career prospects, and much more. The whole point of this argument is that there can be very real, and very dangerous consequences to this behavior, which very clearly seems lost on you at this moment. The world isn’t private anymore, and there are some real shit stains on the internet that will bend over backwards to ruin someone’s life. People in the PvP community have been attacked. There have been people that have been killed from being SWATed by some angsty teenager on a fucking video game. This isn’t about posting “what someone looks like.” This is about preventing others from being harmed by nutjobs who think it’s acceptable to upend someone else’s life over a game. Your entire argument is flawed, and dangerously so. Maybe you need to reconsider your thoughts.
  5. I can't speak for the other staff members and moderators, but I'm confident in my abilities that I am taking every available step and precaution to combat this sort of behavior, and continue to do so on a daily basis. Unfortunately I'm human, so I can't be around 24 hours of every day making sure that people are adhering to our standards, which is why we have additional staff members. Getting everyone on the same page is a constant evolution, new situations crop up, and stuff falls through the cracks. It should not be a regular revolving issue, and if it's getting to that point, we need help from the users of the community to make sure that these situations are being dealt with in fair and just fashion. So, if you see any of this happening, and something isn't being addressed, I am asking you to please get in touch with one of us and we will look at the situation seriously. Given the problems over the last 24 hours, I've had to scramble my staff team and bring up multiple discussions about this type of behavior to make sure everyone is on the same page. Because of this I'm taking up a fair bit of their time making sure that we have the tools to address these problems. IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, PLEASE SAY SOMETHING.
  6. Murd, in all honesty you need to stop. No one on our staff team allows for this kind of nonsense to happen, and we take it pretty seriously when instances of doxing occur. The fact that you think that we even allow this type of behavior on our platform shows how little you know and how much effort and time it takes to keep people like this out of our channels and forums. The reality of this situation is that it's become so entrenched into the community's behavior that everyone thinks it's acceptable to attack each other without actually understanding the real world ramifications, dangers and consequences their actions can bring. Also to add to the point that this isn't a situation where a random member from a clan behaved in rash fashion and was booted from the clan, this was an instance of clan leaders normalizing this behavior in front of all of their members. The difference is that this can create a top-down power vacuum where leadership essentially holds their members hostage with aggressive behavior, and normalizes this behavior in front of their members which in turn will show no regard for others and begin to believe that this sort of behavior is acceptable. And how do you think other clans are going to respond? They're going to respond in like-fashion, which is bad for this community and bad for existing player retention. You need to cut out this "SharkBrew mods is bias" bullshit out and actually take a look at what's happening.
  7. This topic is turning into a shitshow. SharkBrew does not tolerate doxing of anyone under any circumstances. That much is very clear and evident if you actually took a moment to read our community rules. Any sort of activity related to this behavior always will be an immediate ban on-sight response. This concern trolling stating how there’s some sort of inherent bias amongst how our ranks operate is honestly a joke. Every clan on this game likes to claim that there’s some sort of one sided behavior against their clan when the reality is that most clans just want preferential treatment given to them on a silver platter and it’s beyond idiotic. I will repeat this again so it’s drilled deep into your head: SharkBrew has zero tolerance for any activity related to individuals or clans doxing members of other communities, or members within their own communities. This behavior is never allowed on our Forums or our Discord, and will be met with swift action and a permanent ban from our platforms if and when it occurs. Anyone involved in this sort of behavior needs to grow up or quit playing this game because all it does is further fracture this community and erodes the remaining userbase away. I would call on all members of the clan scene, pure clans and main clans alike, to shun this behavior and call out people for making very direct and dangerous attacks towards others so people know who and what to avoid for their own safety, and the safety of this community and its users no matter who you participate with or where you choose to gather. Grow the fuck up people.
  8. This topic seems to be going well so far.
  9. Hopefully you’ll still hang around Discord, have fun and good luck!
  10. Make a proper appeal and I’ll consider it.
  11. Not really sure what went through that hollow head of yours when you made this comment, but I’m not in a clan. I’d say your comment is the poorest piece of content in this thread, but feel free to to try again. Just don’t try too hard, I wouldn’t want you to give yourself a migraine from overstressing that reptilian brain of yours.
  12. We have recently begun adding new staff members to the team that will be helping us focus further on Community Development and Community Event Planning. Both have expressed a desire to get further involved, so please give them a warm welcome! @cxntrxl, Representing Irrelevant Outcasts. @oliver, Representing APEX. We are still looking for several other individuals, so if you're interested, we highly encourage you to fill out an application! Thank you.
  13. Thank you to everyone who participated! This poll is now closed and all posts containing even a single vote category cast have been hidden to prevent further editing. We appreciate everyone's involvement this year and hope to have the results and awards available to you soon!
